Oxford Reading Tree: Stage 5: Songbirds Phonics: Class Pack (36 Books, 6 of Each Title) by Julia Donaldson

Songbirds Phonics combines real phonic stories with interactive whiteboard software to deliver the requirements for high-quality phonics teaching resources. These six Stage 5 books revise all phonics previously covered in Songbirds Stages 1+, 2, 3 and 4, and focus on different spellings of long vowels, e.g. /ue/ made by oo, ew, u-e, ue, o. Notes inside the covers of the storybooks for parents/carers and teaching assistants support both comprehension and word recognition. Also available, a mixed pack of six Songbirds Phonics books, Stage 5, and a Stage 5-6 eSongbirds Phonics CD-ROM.


An excellent full range of phonic usage for these stages of text. I feel children would benefit immensely from the scheme. St Nicholas Primary School, Oxford
